Section 11 is PL OK.

And because I can't help myself and this word or variants on it might come up in future projects, a general note on pronunciation:

Thank you for previous pronunciation note - I had thought there were alternative pronunciations but not so.
Best wishes

One note for section 12:

14.21-14.25, last para p 197
…which the mediaeval wall of Leo IV [heard IX] still girdles…

And two notes for pronunciations that may (or indeed, may not) crop up again.

Don't assume you're categorically wrong about pronunciations. There may very well be a number of possible pronunciations but I do tend to rely on this as it's based on the free English dictionary published by Oxford University Press. That in itself is problematic - it covers nothing like the range of accents in the UK, let alone anything else. I'm not trying to impose RP on you, but if there is an online guide for Australian English I'm not aware of it.

Section 13:

intro – heard section 14
The outro has 13, if you think you can get it with keyhole surgery.


38.37-38.44, bottom third p 225, omission
…do you know that [in that case] a thousand millions would fall at his feet just like the gold and the jewels which you saw raining on the steps of his throne just now?’
The meaning isn’t substantially altered, so it’s up to you if you’d like to change this one.

Section 13 is spot PL OK. One minor note for section 14:

23.12-23.16, p 235 first half of main para
…the large wood showing the deep glaucous greenery [heard scenery] of a stagnant pool.
